Patchwork Accent with FingerPaints Cordur-Orange

Miu Miu, Prada, Nine West, Bottega Veneta

After showing my orange stash here a few days ago, Kelly requested to see FingerPaints Cordur-Orange. This color is absolutely gorgeous! It's one of the few new fall collection shades that was a must have for me. Cordur-Orange is a deep burnt orange that is perfect for fall. Once I put it on, I told my hubby that my nails looked like everything fall...lol. This color is extremely pigmented and was opaque in one coat! Just one more thing to love about it. I'm becoming a huge fan of the FingerPaints formula...it's very easy to work with. Onto the pictures...

Dare I say that this color has surpassed Essie Braziliant and moved to my favorite orange. It's just so pretty and the color is so saturated. Cordur-Orange reminds me of all things fall: pumpkins, leaves changing colors, pie, sweets with apples and cinnamon, and pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks.  The theme for the Monday mani in the Polish-aholics Anonymous group was patchwork. Excitement!!! I saw this tutorial from Kayla Shavonne a few months ago and I've been wanting to try it for the longest. Here's my take on it using Barielle Make it a Latte, Zoya Dree, and Julep Stella.

I am in love with this accent and the color combo. While I know the lines aren't perfect, I think its pretty good for someone who is still a relative newbie when it comes to nail art. The colors scream fall and I don't want to take this mani off.

What are your thoughts on this mani???

Thanks girl! Its still close to 90 degrees here, so its no where near fall weather yet. Believe me, the bright colors will be back out.

Such a gorgeous orange! I like the patchwork and would love to see it on all the nails - but that's just me :)

This is such a great orange... I love vibrant and bold colors like this... and your accent colors are exactly what I would have picked. I got the muted yellow FP from the fall collection (Catwalk Queen). I am liking the FP polishes more and more...

KayJay at Refined & Polished said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Thanks! I'm really liking FP too. The only other one I got from the fall collection was the light green. I feel like I shouldve gotten the yellow one too.

Thanks! I never really do nail art on all fingers, but I think its more of my lack of skills and patience than anything else. :)

Thanks! I really didn't want to take this one off.

Awww....thanks doll!

Yum! I love pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks! This is a great orange. I am really happy to see some brights continue in some collections into fall this year. I had not worn oranges for years until this summer and found they look good on my skin tone as well as I like them long as they are not a Crayola/Halloween plain orange,. Nice art work!
